The reassessment news and developments keep evolving. Over the weekend came word that at the upcoming weekly status conference (held each Wednesday), Judge Wettick may further act upon his frustration with Allegheny County by ordering all City of Pittsburgh and Mt. Oliver residential properties to have their valuations completed by December 2nd, and mailed to property owners by December 9th. The proposed order would also allow for informal appeals during the month of January 2012, with the right to a formal appeal still being retained.
And what is the County's tally on this task? As of last week, 79,000 of 115,000 residential properties had been completed in the City of Pittsburgh, and a handful of the more than 3,000 commercial ones completed. It doesn't take a math whiz to deduce that a lot are left to be completed.
